It was another amazing weekend for the players of BC Baseball’s High Performance Development Program. With over 50 players attending the three day camp, putting in the work and enjoying the benefit of an all star coaching team.
This group of 13U players from all corners of the province were on point, fired up, absorbing and applying the skills and abilities passed on to them by the coaches. It was a strong statement about the future of Baseball in BC and in Canada!
All those who attended should feel proud and hold their head high. You are a shining example of what happens when hard work and dedication meet on the diamond.
A special thank you from all of us at BC Baseball goes out to Brad Blatz and the volunteers at Aldergrove Minor Baseball for their hard work and dedicated support of the development camp. The venue facilities and expert care provided to our athletes, coaches, and parents was simply outstanding! Without your efforts, we could not have provided such an amazing experience for our young athletes! Our success is built on the backs of the 50+ associations who work day in and day out for the youth in their communities.

Please see the attached agenda for the 15U A Summer Season Meeting on May 12th, 2018.
If your association is planning to field a 2018 15U A Summer Team your attendance, either in person or via conference call is strongly recommended.
We also recommend that if you have already selected your coaching staff that they also attend as this will be the ideal opportunity to discuss the upcoming season and any items relevant to a successful summer program.

The Caravan stopped in Duncan on Friday for their last stop on Vancouver Island. It was a great day with the crew running a practice for the Duncan 18U team. Another great opportunity to put boots on the ground working with our member associations. An effort graciously appreciated by the players, coaches and parents. The BC Baseball Coaches Caravan followed later with 140 attending BC Baseball’s flagship program for grass roots players and parents!
Richmond City Baseball’s President, John Braaten and his executive team popped a Grand Slam with 340 players, parents and coaches showing up in force for the first stop of the Saturday tour of the Coaches Caravan. An awesome event to either witness or be a part of!
Second stop for the Caravan on Saturday was Tsawwassen with 120 attending players, coaches and parents. Again coaches were happy with the drills and parents enjoying watching and participating in the drills.
Sunday had the Caravan showing up in Cloverdale as BC Baseball works to continually draw more and more grass roots players to the game. Speaking to president Chris Lund, he is ecstatic about the Caravan stopping in Cloverday and thanks BC Baseball for helping draw almost 250 players, coaches, and parents.
